Check for Previous Experience

When selecting a photographer for your Forsyth County Courthouse wedding, it is important to do research and ensure the photographers you’re considering has experience taking photos in courthouse ceremonies/ intimate wedding ceremonies. It is also important to confirm that the photographer can perform under any circumstances regardless of the lighting that may or may not be available. A true professional should know how to work within the confines of any space as well as bring in supplemental lighting when necessary. Additionally, it’s helpful to look through their portfolio and ask for references from previous couples who had similar styled courthouse weddings.

Verify Pricing and Packages

It is wise to review the costs and packages offered by each photographer. When interviewing prospective photographers, make sure to review all costs and add on fees (for travel, permits, venue fees, parking, etc) – as well as any additional costs for printed products such as albums, larger and smaller wall art pieces, etc. This will allow you to compare how much value each photographer offers for their services.

View a Portfolio of Courthouse Weddings

One of the most important things to do when choosing a Forsyth County Courthouse photographer is to look at their portfolio of images taken at various courthouse style weddings. A good photographer should be able to provide you with examples of photos they’ve taken at similar style weddings in the past, so that you can get an idea of their shooting style and quality. Take note of the editing style, and how the lighting looks in these portfolios. It’s also helpful to see several full sessions from intimate wedding ceremonies (not just the top 20-30 images that may come in a typical portfolio). This will help you choose the right photographer for your special day!

Take into Account Any Optional Add-Ons or Services Provided by the Photographer

Many Forsyth County Courthouse photographers offer add-on products & services such as custom retouching, wall art, albums, and more. Depending on your wedding plans and budget, some of these extras may be worth the investment – so it’s important to factor them into your decision. Be sure to check with the photographer if you have any specific requests or needs, such as special lighting requirements or specific photo requests. This way you can ensure that all of these needs are met before signing a contract!

Schedule a Meeting with Prospective Photographers to Better Assess Their Ability to Capture Your Special Day Perfectly

Before committing to a Forsyth County Courthouse photographer, it’s important to have some form of direct communication in order to get a better understanding of their skills and personality. Speaking with potential photographers will also allow you to view additional portfolios, ask relevant questions, discuss photo styles and techniques they prefer, and ensure that your day runs as smoothly as possible. Additionally, an in-person meeting allows you to review contracts and ask any other questions or concerns you may have before signing a contract.
